|Zebra Mussels Have Been Discovered in Chase State Fishing Lake.|| |
Chase SFL is an ANS designated water. Read the news release HERE.
Zebra mussel veligers (larval zebra mussels) are too small to be seen with the unaided eye and they can be found in boat livewells, minnow buckets, boat bilges, and anything else that is capable of holding even a small amount of water.
Be sure to drain all equipment before leaving the lake to avoid moving veligers to other waters. THIS INCLUDES MINNOW BUCKETS AND BOAT LIVEWELLS AND BILGES!!!
CLEAN DRAIN & DRY Every Lake, Every Time!

|Channel Catfish||Good||Up to 11 lbs|| |
Harvest regulations include a 15-inch minimum length limit and 5/day creel limit.
Fresh cut bait near the fish feeders or on wind blown shorelines. Stinkbaits near the feeders are also productive.
|Largemouth Bass||Fair||Up to 16 inches|| |
There is a 13 to 18 inch slot limit on Largemouth Bass in effect at the lake.
Spinnerbaits and crankbaits are catching some fish. Lake level is dropping and the humps between the fishing piers are easily seen. Bass are hanging on these humps and can be caught on crayfish imitating lures and other plastics. Buzzbaits early and late in the day are also a good choice.
|Saugeye||Slow to Fair||Up to 18 inches||Look for saugeye along the dam and rocky shorelines. Medium sized crank baits either casted or trolled along rocky shorelines in shallow water are a good late summer strategy.|
|Spotted Bass||Fair||up to 14 inch||Crank baits or plastics along the dam and rocky points.|
|Bluegill||Fair||up to 6 inchess||Live bait fished in shallow near shore areas close to vegetation, brush, or rock.|
